    How do we live our lives?: How do we want to live in our homes? Towards an architecture for sharing.2015In: A Vision of Sustainability with focus on Water: Vision, Thinking and Philosophy in context to Sustainability, 2015, p. 1-8Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How we want to live our lives is not an individual matter; it is a collective matter. Our basic human needs are the same whether we are poor or rich and whatever the colour of our skin. The focus of this paper is how we can meet our human needs more sustainably in the context of domestic life, and how the design of future homes can support more ingenuous and convivial resource usage. Of particular importance is the notion of sharing resources. During a pilot study I used the method of shadowing to explore how individuals of different circumstances in Sweden meet their needs in the domestic setting, as well as their experiences of and thoughts on the sharing of resources. Early findings indicate that sharing needs to be easy, and that sharing with people you know is more comfortable. The research should provide insights for urban planners and architects planning new residential neighbourhoods.

    Shifting Mindset: towards sustainability at Linnaeus University design programmes2013In: Projecting design 2012: Cumulus working papers, Cumulus association , 2013, p. 24-29Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The School of Design, part of Linnaeus University in Sweden, has been focusing on new design thinking in our education. In the Sustainability specialization within the Design Programme we have been striving to increase the awareness of sustainability concerns (environmental, social and economic) instead of being traditionally focused on aesthetics.

     We have developed a programme in line with the increasingly problematic world, where climate change is just one incitement for proposing attitudinal changes. The process of shifting our own and our students’ mindsets has been successful. As soon as the students come to grips with the actual situation they are more than willing to change from the romantic dreams of figuring in glossy magazines to developing new fields for their research. Design education can have an impact on society while working closely and together with society to explore what design can do. We are proud of what we have achieved and are heading for a future where the design discipline takes a leading role in transforming vital parts of our society.

    In my paper I will present one of the projects where the focus was on collaborating with a municipal housing company and a Swedish migration institution. It will include some of the extraordinary ideas developed by our students. My aim is to exemplify ‘design in action’, which might mean a changing and expanding view of the design of today and tomorrow. Shifting Mindset.

    Design + change, building a new education2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Why and how do you start a new contemporary design education? A design department in Sweden describe their process of building a new education for social change. Ups and downs are part of the process leading to several conclusions. The most important one is that if your university's strategy documents talk about social responsibility and internationalization, incorporate this strategy in the new education. Your university management may be rather surprised that you actually do what they pro- pose, but the most important aspect is that you will acquire their support.

    There is far too little handicraft going on at the University2016In: In this Place : Cumulus Association Biannual International Conference: Conference proceedings : Wednesday 27 April - Sunday 1 May 2016 / [ed] Duncan Higgins, Venu Dhupa, Nottingham Trent University, 2016, p. 127-132Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Design educations have transformed and changed significantly in the last decades. While, visual expression and craft based workshops used to occupy a big part of the students’ time, nowadays many subject matters compete about time in the curriculum. There is little time for reflection, playfulness or free experimentation. For students this development can be stressful and demanding. I do not believe this is optimal for someone trying to be creative.

    From my experience, handicraft (or Swedish ‘pyssel’) is often ridiculed in the ‘serious’ design discourse. However, it is my hypothesis that this very activity can play a vital role in fostering strong designers. Handicraft can bridge the gap between the effective, purposeful work for fast result and the more practical, analogue and thoughtful part craft can play by letting student ́s try practical work in a playful ‘handicrafty’ way.

    This paper presents findings from my ongoing research exploring the possibility and potential of handicraft in a design context. The research is conducted through creative workshops and seminars with bachelor and masters students in the Department of design, Linnaeus University, Sweden.

    Vår urbana framtid: En animerad framtidsvision för nordöstra Göteborg2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I ett samspel av digital illustration, ljud och rörelse har jag gjort en kortfilm somskildrar kampen mellan natur och urbanisering och framtidens möjligheter förGöteborgs nordöstra stadsdelar. Kontinuerligt tillförs vi nyheter och historier om misäroch hotande katastrofer, vilket troligen påverkar vår inställning till framtiden och våralivsvillkor. I en rapport som utformats av stadsutvecklingsbolaget Utveckling Nordostges en utsikt om en grön och ljus framtid och en presentation av människans kapacitetatt förändra sin egen omgivning. Med animation som medium översätter jag rapportensideal och visioner till en mer praktisk och personorienterad iscensättning för att nå flerinformationsmottagare. Tanken är att det ökar sannolikheten för förverkligandet avdessa ideal då filmen uppmuntrar de boende i Göteborg och övriga intressenter att verkaför framtiden och en hållbar samhällsutveckling.

    For Relationship Diversity From a Polyamourous Perspective2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this bachelor project I’m working with a topic close to my heart, in my heart and a matter of the heart. Its about how humans does intimate relationships. Specifically how people in Sweden have relationships that do not follow the monoamorous norm of Swedish society.

     

    This report goes through how one can work with a highly personal topic with the goal to reach out, to awaken awareness and inspire courage in others. How a designer in a student position can have a process that goes back and forth between ”Participating and Listening”, “Talking and Facilitating” and “Thinking and Making”: and how those roles leak into each other, and nurture the over all process. 

    How did I give visibility to relationship diversity focusing on polyamory and worked withits community? I had a process of searching and experimenting with mediums. Words on twitter and in poems. Gathering people for workshops and conversations. Participating in a polyamourous conference, sending out “Chainletters” among its participants. 

    Gathering inspiration and information until a materialization was needed. Finding that textile crafts feels as close to home as the topic does. Hands and sewing machines turn intangible into tangible; “My Poly Power Blanket”. The quilted materialization and representation of polyamory goes into our graduation exhibition. Where the blanket gets accompanied by the workshops “Relationship Picnic” and “Make you own Power Patch”. This report gives an overview of the complex process that happened when I worked from my heart, with a subject about hearts; polyamory.

    Weaving Futures, Feminisms in Practice2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    At the core of this collaborative ‘independent’ project is a growing and shifting community of practitioners: design students, volunteers, professors, farmers, entrepreneurs, local nonhuman species and the soil; each of us performing our various roles together.

    By contextualizing this community within the growth economy: industrialization, globalization and capitalism and more specifically: patriarchy, oppression, and alienation, I aim to explore how, through design, we can perform local accountabilities that critically co-respond to the greater anthropocentric narratives of our time.

    By engaging with autonomous, post-capitalist feminist theories of care, and the queering of normative ways of world-making, I investigate the roles our everyday farm tools play in helping to further explore, ask questions and shape more resilient and convivial practices.

    Through the collaborative processes of workshopping and prototyping, my collaborators and I challenge the normative narrative of the ‘hero’ tool, looking to our everyday choreographies at the farm for those actions and labours that go unnoticed. Through discussion and material exploration we used the makerly practice of weaving as tool for coming together and helping to create a community of care.

    Handtuftad matta för vardagsrum2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta projekt har varit att få insyn i lämpliga arbetssätt och metoder för att designa mönster i allmänhet och mattor i synnerhet. Att få kontakt med befintliga mattproducenter och designers och se hur de går tillväga. Även insikt i processen om hur man överför mönsterdesign till en produkt.

    Mitt mål var att ta fram en välfungerande matta för privat bruk inomhus. Detta med tilltalande färgkomposition.  

    Utifrån flera studiebesök, enkät, intervjuer, djupstudie, hela min designprocess och ett mycket givande samarbete med mattföretaget Kateha, så har projektet utmynnat i en handtuftad matta – ”Glänta”. Glänta är en handtuftad matta i förnyelsebar ull. Material och teknik är valda för att mattan skall ha potential till en längre livslängd. I valet av mönster och färger har jag tagit inspiration från naturen. Naturen är någonting som brukar vara långsiktigt gångbart. Vilket bordar för en längre estetisk varaktighet på produkten.

    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet Tab.Ulmus undersöker två saker.

    Dels vad kännetecknar framtidens skrivbord ur ett formmässigt, funktionellt och tekniskt perspektiv? Detta görs genom att gå igenom aktuell forskning inom området framtidens arbetsplatser och de trender som man idag ser inom utvecklingen av vårt sätt att utföra kreativt (kontorsbaserat) arbete. En prototyp på ett framtidens skrivbord kommer också att tillverkas i linje med de resultat jag kommer fram till.

    Dels kommer också ett designmanifest att utvärderas. Manifestets tio punkter har vuxit fram som ett resultat av mina studier i kombination med mina tidigare erfarenheter inom datavetenskaplig forskning och hobbysnickeri. Jag försöker i utvecklingen av skrivbordet att följa manifestet, och följer sedan upp i vilken mån punkterna kan anses vara uppfyllda. Resultatet är att jag tillverkat en fungerande skrivbordsprototyp, som i de allra flesta avseenden uppfyller manifestets punkter.

    Abstract [sv]

    Varje dag utsätts vi för ljud som kan vara skadliga för vår hörsel. Våra öron är ett ytterst finkänsligt instrument som vi behöver vara rädda om och det är mycket viktigt att vi kan finna tid och plats för återhämtning. Hemmet är en plats som jag tycker borde kunna erbjuda oss den vila vi behöver. Akustiken i hemmet påverkas när arkitekturen i husen förändras. Den öppna planlösningen leder till problem med ljudmiljön och många tänker inte på detta. Kombinationen med öppen planlösning, hårda material, stora glaspartier och högt i tak gör att ljudet beter sig på ett sätt som är ansträngande för vår hörsel. I mitt designarbete försöker jag skapa en mer behaglig hemmiljö som erbjuder en lugnare, mer naturlig akustik. Det ljudlandskap vi har i vårt egna privata utrymme, hemmet, borde få vara något som känns bra på alla sätt. Människan har ett behov av återhämtning och därför skulle en produkt som ökar chansen för det vara till nytta.

    How to Create a Colour Education that Fosters Price-winning Design Students2015In: AIC 2015 Tokyo, Colour and Image: Book of Abstracts / [ed] Hirohisa Yaguchi, Katsunori Okajima, Taiichiro Ishida, Kikuko Araki, Motonori Doi, Yoshitsugu Manabe, Color Science Association of Japan , 2015, Vol. 1, p. 81-81Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How to create a colour education that fosters price-winning design students?: An example from the Linnaeus University in Sweden.

    BackgroundThe colour education of today is an important building block for all future design. If we can provide our students with state of the art colour education we will get the best future design when itcomes to the use of colours. That will include all kinds of design e.g. graphic design, architecture andproduct design.

    In 2014 there was a national competition called Awarded Colour, organized by Swedish ColourCentre Foundation that celebrated their 50 years anniversary. The competition was open to all studentsof design, architecture, fine art graphic design and advertisement. Design students from the relativelysmall product design programme at the Linnaeus University won two out of three awards.A prizewinning concept for color education.

    The subject of colour is introduced very early in the programme. Students of product design have two weeks of colour theory and workshops in their firstsemester. In this basic theoretical course the students get to know different colour systems and theadvantage of using systems to think, visualise and communicate colour. In the workshops they cantrain their eyes and skills in mixing and combining colours with an increasing degree of complexity.The workshop ends with a task where students explore the use of colours in different contexts such asart, architecture, visual communication, design and in other cultures.

    This lays a ground for four more weeks of colour projects with a researching approach. Thestudents phrase their own colour questions and seek answers through research and visual colourrepresentations. In the second year there is a progress in understanding different contexts of colour.The students continue with light theory and light projects for five more weeks and then proceed withlight and colour in space contexts for another five weeks.

    To ensure that the students will train and use their colour skills throughout their entire studyperiod the students are asked to present and motivate the chosen colours in every project they do. Thatmakes them always remember that the aspects of colour are as important as any other design aspectwhen it comes to the visual expression.

    The students are also asked to participate as subjects in colour research projects to make themaware that colour research is a huge field with many disciplines involved and many questions emergingfrom their colour studies can actually be research questions and lead to colour research projects.

    The three-fold strategy, early introduction, emphasis on colour and continuous progression,has proved to be successful. The fact that students from the product design programme at LinnaeusUniversity could win two out of three awards for best colour design is a clear indication of that.

    What are the colours of the words ‘Me’ and ‘Others’?2016In: AIC2016 Interim Meeting, Color In Urban Life : Images, Objects And Spaces, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How do people from different cultures associate colours with certain words?

    A comparative study between Swedish and Nepalese subjects’ colour associations to 24 words.

    More and more people live in cities. Urban life provides us with a huge amount of information. Much of the information is visual and based on, or including colours. Urban people receive visual information almost all the time and have to quickly sort and evaluate the messages and judge if it is of importance to them. The perception of colour is immediate and therefore colours constitute important signals to us. But do colours mean the same thing to people living in Stockholm as they do to people in Kathmandu? 

    This paper describes a study into how a series of words can be associated with colours in two different cultures. The findings should be of interest for professionals and academics working in the remit of visual communication in different cultures. The aim of this research is to investigate if there are distinctive patterns - similarities and differences - in how subjects from two different cultures connect words with colours.

    The two countries represented in this study are located in different parts of the world (Europe and Asia), with different cultures and religious traditions. From each country there are two groups of subjects, one group is a general mix of people who are not working with colours in their professional life. Another group consists of students of art and design from the Linnaeus University and Kathmandu University. It will be possible to compare the answers from these two groups separately. The subjects speak and understand English well. They do not have any known colour defects and they are born and live in Sweden or Nepal. In the study, design students and laypersons (50 from Sweden and 50 from Nepal) were given 24 words in English. They were asked to match each word to a colour from a chart with 27 selected colours from the NCS system. The results will be presented with statistics and diagrams showing the chosen colours. The results will be analysed in terms of how coherent the answers are and potential patterns that emerge specific to the countries, and their cultural contexts.

    The words that are investigated are of different characters; some of them maybe have a more obvious connection to colours as the words ‘warm’ and ‘cold’. Others are more of a emotional character such as ‘sorrow’ and ‘happiness’ while others might be more subjective like the colours for the words ‘me’ and ‘others’. The 24 words tested in this study are warm, cold, sorrow, happiness, calm, upset, near, distant, young, old, feminine, masculine, fast, slow, strong, weak, false, true, cheap, expensive, friendly, dangerous, me and others.

    From the study it will also be possible to see if there are differences in the chosen colours related to the subjects’ sex, age, experience of colour and religion, The Nepalese subjects are most Hindu and Buddhists while the Swedish subjects are mostly Christians, although it is not known to what extent the subjects are actually religious practioners. The reason for doing this pilot study in Sweden and Nepal is that these two countries obviously differ in term of culture and religion

    This is a pilot study to explore the method and it is conducted in two different countries. With the experience of this study a lager study will be conducted in six more countries with various cultures and religious background in different parts of the world during 2016 and 2017.

    What are the colours of Health and Sickness?2017In: Being Color with Health AIC 2017 Proceedings / [ed] Y.J.Lee, J. Hwang, H.J. Suk, Y.K. Park, The International Colour Association, 2017, article id OS17-3Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate if there are colours that are associated with the words “Health” and“Sickness”. The study was conducted in three countries, Sweden, Russia and Uganda, to see if there are culturaldifferences in the way people associate colours with the words. In each country, there were two groups of subjects,one group included colour professionals, such as design or art students, and the other group consisted of morecommon people that had no specific colour training. The subjects were asked to match each of the words withonly one colour. They could choose colours from the chart consisting of 27 colour samples selected from the NCSAtlas. The collected data were analysed separately by three values, specifying the hue, the degree of blackness,and the chromaticness. We revealed that colour associations with the words “Health” and “Sickness” usingcolours vary between different countries. However, we revealed unique colours with the strongest links to thewords “Health” and “Sickness” for all of the experimental groups. That indicates that there are universalassociations with colours that can help to promote health and wellness.

    Bli en miljönär med klimatsmarta drag i vardagen: En informationsbroschyr med fokus på miljö, konsumtion och material2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Abstrakt

    Under 2015 behandlades 4 703 790 ton hushållsavfall på Sveriges återvinningscentraler, det motsvarar 477 kilo per person/år. Ofta kastar vi fullt fungerande saker. När det gäller livsmedel så kastar vi utan att ens lukta eller smaka, många gånger före det att bäst-före-datum har gått ut. Utan att vi reflekterar över miljökonsekvenserna köper vi produkter i dubbla förpackningar, plaster, folier och pappersförpackningar, utan att de extra emballagen egentligen fyller någon större funktion. Vi kör flera vändor till återvinningscentraler med vårt trädgårdsavfall och tidningarna åker rakt i soporna. Det är varken miljömässigt- eller ekonomiskt hållbart. Jag vill få oss att reflektera och tänka till en gång extra. Hur kan jag förändra mina köpvanor och konsumtionsmönster på ett enkelt och smidigt sätt, som fungerar i vardagen och inte krånglar till det? Genom att ge ut en informationsbroschyr, innehållande enkla tips och råd hur vi ska agera medvetna konsumenter, hoppas jag kunna bidra till att vi alla blir våra egna miljönärer så att hushållsavfallet kan minska. Projektet "Bli en miljönär med klimatsmarta drag i vardagen" är ett samarbete med miljöbolaget VMAB, Västblekinge Miljö AB. VMAB är ett av alla miljöbolag i Sverige som samordnar kommunernas avfallshantering och som även svarar för behandling av avfall. I samverkan med VMAB har jag tagit fram en informationsbroschyr med fokus på miljö, konsumtion och material för att öka kunskapen kring avfallsslag, hur de hanteras och på vilket sätt avfallet kan återvinnas eller återanvändas.

    The Story of Handwriting: Is handwriting as a practice still used in Swedish schools?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This design project will map, look at and give answers regarding: The story of handwriting from a pedagogical perspective, within a Swedish context. It is primarily based on a great interest in writing by hand, and the effects and benefits it has on its practitioners. Handwriting today compared to before is getting less space in the digitized society, but is handwriting as a practice still used in Swedish schools?

    The predicted meaning is that children in school cannot write properly by hand anymore, due to all technologies such as smartphones, tablets and computers. The question is complex and the answer is more than just a simple yes or no, and therefore this investigation in handwriting has been done.

    The thesis will look back in the history of handwriting and give answers to the question through both theory and practice. Through research it will document differences and similarities between how people born between 1930-1959 and today’s lower elementary school children are looking at and working with handwriting. To be able to make this comparison—a digital survey, field studies, workshops and handwritten letters and notes from persons within the two defined research groups has worked as research methods to make the result as reliable as possible.

    Until recently, the art of writing more known as “Välskrivning” was a very central competence in Swedish school. It was a graded subject where focus was on how to write properly and practice good handwriting. The fact that “Välskrivning” is no longer a school subject means that the children today do not have the same prerequisites for succeeding with handwriting in the long term. They get other opportunities in the digital world, but one does not have to exclude the other.

    In my research I have found that despite technological tools and advancements, children still enjoy and value writing by hand, and then it is my task as a change agent to break the norm that handwriting as a practice is disappearing in Swedish schools and give children the tools they need to continue writing new chapters in the story of handwriting. To stimulate learning with joy, work with fine motor skills and strengthen the ability to concentrate amongst children through a handwriting workshop is what the investigation has led to. The answers in this thesis will not change the world, but the handwriting workshop, designed as a pedagogical tool, will hopefully inspire and motivate children to write by hand for a long time to come.

    Ljuskälla: Från ljusbord till armatur genom den ställbara bordsskivan2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    On the market there is a gap between the functional and the aesthetic light tables. It is in

    this gap, I have chosen to work. As the light table is a piece of furniture that usually is

    used only a few hours a day, I have expanded the application area by exploring the

    possibilities of light in the table. I have designed a piece of furniture that can be used as

    a work surface, as well as a light source.

    By tilting the tabletop it can be adjusted to fit the users need. In the flat position

    when working at the table and in a tilted position the light shines on the walls and in the

    ceiling, and then reflects out in the room in your desired color, strength and tone. My

    investigation has been on how we are affected by light and the lighting effects which

    otherwise occur in natural light.

    Vardagsglas: För kökets trädgård2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When I founded my concept about the kitchen's garden, my project expanded to become two. This meant that my graduation project has been about working with two different companies and developing two different glass products. The companies Skrufs glasbruk and Artilleriet have been my outsoursers. The project has been a challenge in the form of different starting points and delimitations, which has meant that I have explored two different directions in design aesthetics. The expression in the products has been my priority as I recall the companies strive for different aims, which has not always been the easiest task.

    My concept of functional glassware in The Kitchen’s Garden is based on the importance of indoor cultivation and gardening, which secures the knowledge of the origin and care of the vegetables as well as the importance of emphasizing other types of vegetation in the kitchen.

    A great part of my project has been to explore different methods of highlighting the glass properties to emphasize the transparent glass itself. Transparent glass has the ability to color itself depending on its context and how it is used, which gives a personal variation which contributes with options for the user to decide.

    INVIT: En klädförvaringsserie2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Enligt psykologen Abraham Maslow har människan fem grundläggande behov indelade i olika nivåer. Ett av dessa behov är behovet av trygghet och känslan av att ha kontroll över sina ägodelar. Brist på denna känsla kan stå i vägen för att människan ska kunna leva i nuet, kunna utvecklas och för att hon ska kunna ägna sig åt sin passion. Denna teori, känd som Maslows behovstrappa, ligger som grund för designen i detta projekt.

    Jag har under mitt examensarbete arbetat mot Mitab, ett företag beläget i Tranås som arbetar med möbler för offentlig miljö. Mitab bad mig skapa en klädförvaringsserie, extremt enkel i sitt uttryck, med så få material och olika element som möjligt. Produkterna i serien skulle kännas förväntade och självklara.

    Abstract [en]

    This project regards animal rights and in this case homeless cats specifically in Sweden. The process has been determined by three keywords; documenting, narrative and artistic and with these words in mind I designed a book on the subject. I travelled to different places in the south of Sweden to see people who are passionate about rescuing cats and who constantly work to raise the status and the value of the cat. It is a visually interesting book filled with photographs of cats, surroundings and people and the stories these people shared with me. This report contains arguments regarding the design decisions that I made to create the book.

    Orientations of Europe: Boats, the Mediterranean Sea and the Materialities of Contemporary Mobility Regimes2018In: Borderlands e-journal, ISSN 1447-0810, E-ISSN 1447-0810, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 1-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is an investigation of how the specific design and materiality of the artefact of the boat, as well as the various material, visual, technical and geographical practices at work in the space of Mediterranean Sea, orientate a specific space and produce a selective politics of seeing, saving and framing of bodies on the move. It highlights how the very presence and movement of ‘unseaworthy boats’ in this actively orientated space of the sea brings to the fore the many strategies and techniques that have been employed to make it a space of European control. We argue that this is an active and deadly orientation carried out in an often dispersed number of practices and interventions within a seemingly flat space of water. The paper concludes that border transgressors’ act of moving by boat, with all of the losses involved, both challenge and potentially reorientate European mobility regimes.

    Abstract [en]

    This workshop gathers those who are interested in producing a set of responses to the concept of manipulation through a specific framework of design ecologies. The workshop will adapt a methodological approach linking artefact, site and space – an approach we hope will offer ample opportunity to explore manipulation both as a concept and a local and material practice that produces global effects.

    Participants are invited to contribute with specific case studies of artefacts, sites and/or spaces, reading them up and against the notion of manipulation considered here not merely as an outcome of environments but also as a source of the production of environments.

    The workshop is a part of MANIPULATIONS, an ongoing initiative in which scholars, researchers, artists and designers submit and discuss their investigations and explorations of the concept of manipulation.

    The Politics of Borders in the Emergence of Modern Swedish Craft2019In: Journal of Modern Craft, ISSN 1749-6772, E-ISSN 1749-6780, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 13-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nation states have been imagined and constructed by defining certain identities and practices. Among cultural and economic practices bound to material culture, craft has played a significant role in the processes of imagining communities and consequently nationalities in modern times. These imaginations were produced and sustained by various discursive and materialized borders that were based on simultaneous practices of inclusion and exclusion, targeting certain bodies within the formation of a nation state. In this article, we discuss instances of such bordering in Sweden, by looking at specific state documents of controlling the movement and residence of those who were seen as suspicious and potentially threatening. Among these individuals were craftspeople with religious and/or ethnic backgrounds different than the imagined modern Swedish subjects. They were often represented as a threat to the economic, social, and cultural prosperity of the Swedish nation state. These individuals and groups, and their craft practices, were variously appropriated, erased, included, and excluded by the nation state. This article argues that an understanding of modern Swedish craft is impossible without recognizing the crafts that were excluded from its emergence, articulation, and sustainment over the last hundred years. This is to argue that an understanding of the politics of craft requires recognition of the borders that regulate how-and by whom-craft can be practiced.

    Gör dina egna kartor: undersökning om kartan som metod och kunskapsbyggare2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this project my interest in maps has merged with a craftsmanlike approach. I try to broaden our view of what a map should look like and to confirm the methodological relevance of maps. The study includes form experiments in materials like textiles, sand and paper. Knowledge building is in focus during the process, as well as demonstrating that we can all make our own maps.

    The project concludes with a visualization where the recipient is given the chance of contributing to the work in the form of a cartography workshop. It is my belief that maps can increase our knowledge and understanding of the surrounding world as well as of ourselves, which may lead towards a more sustainable society.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this project was to act as an eye opener for the problematic regarding the respect for wooden waste materials thrown away every day at Swedish wood companies. A lot of material, that is completely functional, but is considered as too defect and therefore useless for wooded furniture factories, is grained down to dust and chippings to eventually getting burnt to ashes and stocked in piles.In this project, a wooden tile was designed and hand crafted from waste wood. The tile was created to use as a décor for floors and walls as well as ceilings and furniture. This to communicate the true life story of the wooden waste as well as to raise awareness of wood as a material and its possibilities in interior design.

    Legal Modernities: conceptual transformations around the management of human mobility in international relations2013In: Foreigners, refugees, or minorities?: rethinking people in the context of border controls and visas / [ed] Didier Bigo, Sergio Carrera, Elspeth Guild, Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2013, 1, p. 75-88Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The discussion about the situation of the Roma in Europe and their exceptional legal standing when it comes to the right to movement is a telling example of both the legalization of politics and politicization of law within the EU. This text seeks to contribute to the project to re-frame our understanding of international law[1]by looking at how a drive to order coupled with a particular idea of the location of sovereign power that is dependent on particular historicist assumptions and a constantly re-produced separation between different levels of analysis (especially national and international) pervasive within the discipline of international law often enough make such a re-conceptualization impossible despite the best of intentions. It is by tracing this type of human rights discourse internal to international law that we can start to produce constructive criticism of the structures and processes of international law.

    [1]In 2002, for example, Richard Falk, Lester Edwin J. Ruiz and R. B. J. Walker (on behalf of the journal Transnational Law and Contemporary Problems) gathered some of the field’s most prominent scholars in order to engage the question of what it might mean to re-frame international law for the 21st century. Accepting its role as a millennial product and at the same time finding the temporal and spatial structures upon which the question as such was framed, the collection explicitly began by asking what was at stake in ‘framing’ anything in terms of ‘re-framing’. In so doing, the authors located a current disciplinary sensitivity in “a loss of confidence in the adequacy of the world” which is reflected both in doubts about the possibility of interpreting the world and also in the actual normative structures of the world. According to the authors, the effect of lost confidence could be seen in how the academic interpreters of international law “tack uneasily between a conventional wisdom about a world of sovereign jurisdictions coexisting in an increasingly responsible and cooperative system and a sense of profound disorientation.” Falk, Ruiz, Walker, p. 4. – 5.

    Alla talar om boende: Om boende, byggnation, design och hållbar utveckling : Rapport FOI-studie Plattform för boendeforskning2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad är boende? Boende berör alla och kan betyda både ”att bo” men också ”en person som bor”. På engelska används begreppen Housing och Living. Boende i ett vidare perspektiv går att se som människan i förhållande till rumslighet eller plats, en fysisk relation men också en relation till en situation.

    I intervjuer inom studien konstateras att det finns ett behov av att utveckla ny kunskap om människans, samhällets och näringslivets visioner, behov och förväntningar relaterat till boende. Flera av de intervjuade lyfter fram att tidigare stora bostadssatsningar var grundade på forskning men att det idag inte finns aktuell kunskap som stöd för vad som betecknas som nödvändiga perspektivskiften.

    Ny kunskap inom boende är efterfrågad. 

    I rapporten diskuteras behovet av ett holistiskt synsätt på boende där människan och hennes behov av skydd, trygghet, komfort och stimulans står i centrum. En person är både enskild och del av flera olika kontexter. Ett stort antal verksamheter inom samhälle och näringsliv relaterar till den enskilda och till olika grupper. En person eller grupp bor (vistas) i en miljö som dels består av bostaden, men också grannskapet, lokalsamhället och i allt större sammanhang. Det konstateras att begreppet ”boende” har stor komplexitet och att kunskapsutveckling inom ämnet bör gynnas av tvärvetenskaplig och gränsöverskridande forskning. Figuren ”Den boende människan” har skapats för att beskriva ämnets komplexitet och hur olika aktörers och intressenters behov och verksamhet griper in i varandra.

    Samtal med forskare inom Linnéuniversitetet visar att det inom lärosätet finns kunskap och engagemang inom ett flertal ämnen och institutioner.  Idag beforskas oftast frågeställningar relaterat till boende inom respektive institution men det finns gränsöverskridande projekt. Frågeställningar inom boende har stor bredd, att använda begrepp som bostads-eller boendeforskning blir avgränsade. Att bredda fältets definition ger större möjligheter att omfatta fler perspektiv och att arbeta holistiskt och inkluderande.

    Profilen för en plattform för boendeforskning vid Linnéuniversitet förslås omfatta boende, byggnation, design och hållbar utveckling. Det relaterar väl till befintlig forskning och påbörjade projekt, men ger samtidigt möjlighet till nya perspektiv och ny samverkan. Miljön ska vara öppen och inkluderande och välkomna forskare från samtliga fakulteter.

    Vid Linnéuniversitetet bedrivs redan forskning i ovan nämnda ämnen. Tvärvetenskaplig och gränsöverskridande forskning skulle gynnas av att en miljö skapas där forskare med gemensamt intresse för boende, byggnation, design och hållbar utveckling kan samverka och där några av de svårigheter som finns med tvärvetenskaplig forskning skulle kunna minimeras. Faktorer som kan underlätta är känsla av tillhörighet samt enkla arbetssätt som gemensam ekonomistyrning för alla forskare i ett projekt. Frågan om meritering vid arbete i gränsöverskridande projekt och vid arbete inom samverkansprojekt behöver bearbetas.

    Linnéuniversitetet har goda möjligheter att utveckla ny efterfrågad kunskap inom boenderelaterade frågor. Dels genom befintliga forskningsprojekt vid lärosätets olika institutioner men också genom att bygga en forskningsmiljö som har ett holistiskt perspektiv med tvärvetenskaplig och gränsöverskridande forskning.

    Abstract [sv]

    Glas är mer aktuellt än någonsin. Ledande glasforskning bedrivs inom områden som Transparent intelligens och supertunna glas. Innovativ svensk glasdesign är internationellt framgångsrik, inom arkitektur blir användandet av glas vanligare och mer utmanande. Dagens innovationer och framgångar är, som jag ser det, ett resultat av vår glastradition. Kunskap om glas och glastillverkning har under lång tid naturligt överförts mellan generationer av innovatörer, kreatörer och entreprenörer. Utvecklingen i glaslandet Sverige gynnas av att glastraditionen förvaltas, till fördel för framtidens glasinnovationer.

    Förstudie - Ny glasgång för Kulturparken Småland: Hur kan transparent intelligens utnyttjas i en offentlig miljö?2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tankarna på att bygga en glasgång mellan Smålands museum och Utvandrarnas hus har funnits ett tag. När det kommunala fastighetsbolaget Vöfab köpte museibyggnaden av Stiftelsen Smålands museum i december 2014 och all mark mellan byggnaderna så var ett avgörande juridiskt hinder undanröjt. Nu fanns det möjlilghet att bygga en glasgång.

    Förstudiens mål är att synliggöra och tvärvetenskapligt undersöka möjligheterna att använda transparent intelligens vid gestaltning av en ny glasgång som ett tilltalande inslag i Växjös offentliga miljö.

    I rapporten beskrivs transparent intelligens och ger många exempel inklusive figurer, både på tekniker och också byggnader. I rapporten berättas också omkonstnärlig gestaltning och utmanande arkitektur, materialet glas beskrivs både ingenjörsmässigt och designmässigt.

    Förstudien visar vilka möjligheter det finns att använda transparent intelligens när en offentlig byggnad ska byggas, men också vilka begränsningar (t.ex. ljud, ljus, värme, kyla, underhållsvänlighet, teknik). En litteratursökning har visat att det finns byggnader som fungerar som en dekoration samtidigt som det har en funktion, i en offentlig miljö.

    I och med att det händer mycket inom området intelligent transparens så byggs det nya prototyper med den senaste tekniken eller en gammal teknik som används på ett nytt sätt. Inom Smart Housing Småland görs det nya prototyper i samarbete med industrin, som kan visas upp i glasgången, om den blir verklighet. Detta gör att allmänheten får ta del av den senaste tekniken inom intelligent transparens.

    Abstract [en]

    This project is about creating a graphic identity and profile for Återbruksbyn, Växjö. Återbruksbyn is a project created by Växjö municipality and the cooperative Macken, and it is about building a central space and meeting point for people who want to buy, sell, exchange, give away and reuse old products instead of throwing them away. It is a place that focuses on circular economy and wants to introduce this alternative system to the people of Växjö. My role and purpose with this project has been to analyse Återbruksbyn and its values, and through that, create a graphic identity that reflects these values and goals. This is my process.

    En ärvbar möbel för barn2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Begreppet ärvbarhet handlar om en strävan att ge produkter möjlighet till en lång livscykel. En ärvbar artefakt kan gå i arv från storebror till lillasyster, från kusin till granne, från vuxen till barn. Projektets mål har varit att skapa en förvaringsmöbel för barn i hemmiljö med en hög ärvbarhet och och en tydlig identitet utifrån företaget Unis formspråk och värderingar. Produktens kvalité, funktion och formspråk tillsammans med den mening vi tillskriver artefakten gör att den värdesätts högre och låter den få ett längre liv. Resultatet är en förvaringsmöbel i form av en stiliserad elefant som kan ändras efter ålder och behov och följa med barnet upp i vuxen ålder. En möbel som passar lika bra i barnrummets fria tankevärld som i den vuxnes hall.

    Speculative futures of sustainable communities: Utilizing the resources of collective living to speculate sustainable futures.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this report is to speculate how our neighborhoods could look like in the future, looking at modern collective living due to the housing crisis is Sweden today. This paper will look att different forms of collective housing, to challenge the conventional way of living. Connecting sustainability to the act of sharing space and resources, in creating a collaborative lifestyle.

    The research methods used in this speculative project looks at three case studies of collective housing to analyse and define different levels of sharing. During the design process one intervention was executed to challenging the norm of ownership, questioning what the act of sharing demands.

    The goal of this project is to change assumptions of collective living by rethinking space. To create an interlaced community, with hopes of becoming more resilient. The research and its findings worked along- side the report and developed into a zine. The zine was made with key insights from the study, as a tool to communicate the design proposal and can easily be distributed to the Swedish population.
